PLEEEEAAAAAAAAAASEEEEEEEE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OpenStudy (anonymous):

does this mean \[f\circ g(x)\]?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

i.e. \[f(g(x))\]

OpenStudy (anonymous):

oops sorry it is \[g(f(x))\] ok first step replace the generic f by the specific one, get \[g(x^2)\] then evaluate g at x^2 get \[g(x^2)=x^2-3\]

OpenStudy (anonymous):

\[g(x)=x-3\] says to subtract 3, so \[g^{-1}(x)=x+3\] says to add 3. does the opposite action

OpenStudy (anonymous):

and finally \[g(f(x))=g^{-1}(x)\] means \[x^2-3=x+3\] making \[x^2-x-6=0\] \[(x+2)(x-3)=0\] \[x=-2,x=3\]
